I would not consider this cruise a good value for the money. We paid twice as much as our last 7 day Princess cruise, and it wasn't nearly as good. My 9 year-old daughter agrees. The dining hours were terrible. The buffet was closed almost every time I went for food. The three times I did manage to get in, food was school cafeteria quality. The dining room's food was not much better. The service was nothing to write home about either. There were too many children. They had to close the pool almost every day because some kid pooped in there; and, once there was even a closure due to vomit. Gross! The kids club was so crowded and poorly organized that my daughter almost never wanted to go because it was crazy in there. There were few activities in there, and they were of very poor quality. Princess at least has some nice crafts that kids would want to take home and save as a souvenir like tee shirt design, but Disney had nothing like this. Plus, having so many kids made the ship noisy and difficult to relax in. There's an adult section, but I couldn't go there because I had my little girl with me. I got virtually no alone time with my hubby on this ship. On Princess I couldn't tear my little one away from the Kid's Club. None of the 3 nice little girls we met on the ship were particularly keen to go to the kids club either. They all complained that it was boring and too noisy. There were few movies or crafts for adults. There were few classes of any kind for the adults. There was no casino. The satellite was out for the entire cruise, so the only thing to watch on TV was the same 5 or 6 kids movies that they kept playing over and over again. I think I now know every line from The Golden Compass and Shrek 4. The room was bigger than on some of the other ships, but the couch bed was tortuously uncomfortable for my daughter even with an egg-crate topper. It was so bad, she wanted to sleep with us, which she usually detests. I will never do another Disney Cruise and I appreciate Princess, Norwegian, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean much more now that I've experienced Disney. It's a shame because we were very excited about this cruise. We were extremely disappointed. But, if you have loud obnoxious children who run wild and like to or cannot prevent themselves from defiling public swimming pools by releasing their bowels or throwing up in them, I would definitely encourage you to give all of your patronage to Disney Cruise Line, because A. you'll fit right in and B. I will be on some other cruise line. Read Less

This cruise was such a disappointment. The family areas are so loud and rambunctious, that you never want to spend time there, and the adult sections are nice, but your kids can't go in them. The kids club has so many kids, and the projects and activities are cheap, disorganized and extremely chaotic--great for super outgoing children that like a raucous time, but for normal kids--it's a turn off and hard to meet others, because there are just so many kids, you don't see the kid you met the last time again--therefore, they don't meet friends and don't want to go to the kids club. Plus checking them in and out of the kids club feels like you are checking them in and out of prison. The kids staff was a bit rude and cold. You had to scan them in and out, and they had to wear some kind of tag the whole time. The food was inferior to Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian and Celebrity, but on par with Carnival. Seeing the Disney Characters was cool, but they rush past you so quickly that it's not worth it--buy your own Mickey costume take it on a RCCL cruise and save the money. We went with extended family(10 people), but none of the adults(like my parents) ever spent time with us, because they didn't want to venture into the family sections. The cruise cost twice as much as Princess or other quality lines for half the quality of food and services. The staff were so-so on the Disney line, but the shows were cool. We had some really poor waiters, and some okay assistant waiters. The room was bigger on Disney, than on other ships. Pros: Big rooms, good shows, Disney characters Cons: Expensive, noisy, obnoxious kids and passengers were everywhere, mediocre service from crew, ridiculously small library, really shoddy kids club, second rate food, inconvenient buffet hours(This killed us, it was closed every time we wanted to eat + it seemed dirty, dingy, and worse than Sizzler in appearance, selection and food quality) Read Less
